2018 Year In Sumo Video Podcast

Team Tachiai adds Liam to the podcast to discuss the year is sumo, our Genki Report, and our always regrettable predictions for 2019.  Bonus feature, Liam and Josh take us through some favorites and new packs from BBM’s sumo sports card line.

It’s an hour or sumo fandom on video, and helps us all mark the time until Santa brings us the Hatsu banzuke for Christmas.

Kyushu Video Podcast

Andy, Josh and Bruce have once again taken to YouTube to discuss an upcoming basho.  Join us for 45 minutes of pure sumo fandom as we discuss who we think is genki, our “Ones to Watch”, and our always regrettable predictions.

With the Kyushu basho just a few days away, this is the preview that sumo fans can use to justify the next 3 weeks. Grab some sake, and spend some quality time with us. Onwards to Kyushu!

Fan Treat – NHK Ura Video (Surgery Recovery and Aki Basho Workup)


Because you have all been such nice sumo fans, I now shamelessly share this video (in Japanese for everyone to practice their skill) recapping Ura’s injury, recovery and return to sumo competition. We are treated to watching him work his rebuilt knee, struggle with physical therapy, and generally gamberizing the crap out of his life for the last year.

The sumo world is going crazy with fans rejoicing over the return of many favorites to the dohyo, and we are right there with them!

Now everyone stay calm while I try to find a way to get to Tokyo today.
